Yes, they are saying he worked harder(er) over this past summer. But in terms of whether that amounts to anything or plans on how they are going to use him, the comments seem to get vague and then the praise gets blurred on whether his hard work will really amount to anything this season. With other players, it feels like they are praising something more specific and you read it thinking, "ok, they just might use him in such-and-such situation."
I certainly don't read everything, so I'm just basing comments on what I have read. Again, maybe my in between the lines is bull. LOL. But that's my take on it.
Hey! I found the article I was looking for when I referenced the Glen Taylor sale. It is below. To me, 16 games for a team that is fringe/borderline playoff worthy actually is kind of a big deal. http://www.startribune.com/sports/wolves/171862611.html?refer=y
Oh, and public leagues may want to take note. Land Kirilenko in your draft (normal draft slot if possible) and sell him high after month 1. True, Kirilenko's value is in some of the side stats (steals, blocks), but I suspect his value will be at its peak after month 1 (in terms of pts/rebs) and if you can land good value for that, you may want to take advantage of a plan like that.
